Cricut ARTBOOKING Give Thanks card!

Hello, friends!

Today's card is one of my favorites that I have made using the Artbooking cartridge.  I  have some regular A2 sized cards coming up, so don't think that I am going weird with my card sizes. Occasionally, it is fun to make a tall and skinny one!
 
For the stamped portion of this card I used a new stamp set that I absolutely love called Happy Autumn. It has it all: pretty flowers, a great font, and useful sentiments!

I used Cocoa, Hollyhock, and Colonial White cardstock. The pretty stripped ribbon is also from CTMH.
I used Cocoa, Blush, Hollyhock, and Olive inks.

Your card is so beautiful. I love how it's totally different and I agree it's fun to change things up and a tall card does allow for more creativity even to create a scene card. This stamp is awesome. You are no matter how you slice it are the "Queen of flowers" no matter how they are created & I'm proud to be a friend the "Queen Melanie".

Thanks for showcasing the versatility of the Artbooking cartridge for card makers. I love this card and the stamp set, too! It is fun to see the longer cards once in a while. Your designs are always inspiring.

This is gorgeous! You're right, it's nice once in a while to change the size of the card! I need to do that too.

Beautiful card, and I'm always short on ideas for a long card, so thank for sharing as well as the awesone idea. Looking forward to seeing your smaller card ideas.

Karen Sue said...

I love how you used the Artbooking Cartridge for the backdrop on your card! I never think to make a tall card... After seeing your card I'll have to try to be more creative with my card shapes :-)

All the elements of this card, shapes, color, and techniques, all work great together to make on beautiful card.

Hi Melanie! I think this is one of MY favorite cards that you've done from this cartridge too! I love the shape of it as well as the details. I recently bought a We R Memory Keeper's Envelope board so now I'm not afraid of making cards that aren't A2 or 6x6 (for which I stock pre-made envelopes). I want to make up some sets of Thank You Notes for teacher friends of mine, and these would go together pretty quickly if I don't do too much stamping on them. Thanks for the inspiration! -- Susan Smith
